Shabby Chic Wedding

As promised I have a ton of pictures from this past weekends wedding event.  It turned out beautifully and I was really excited to be asked to participate in the planning of my sisters wedding.

There was a lot of work, personal touches, hands on projects that went into this wedding. The wedding was held at the grooms parents house and the first time I walked into the space it certainly did not look wedding ready. 

We figured the dirt floor was a little shabby but not so chic for a wedding so new wood floors was on the agenda, and they really did turn out beautifully.
With a lot of pinteresting, phone conversations and texting we had a game plan of sorts and a vision of the final look. 

There were two big sliding doors off of the back of the barn which was a perfect spot to add extra seating under a tent.

 I know this isn't the best quality photo but I had to share to show how pretty all the light were and really this doesn't even do it justice. 

For a truly amazing shabby chic look it is all in the details and if nothing else our family is good at the details.  The bunting banner that hangs around the barn was done by the grooms sister whom after to many hours to count I am sure still has nightmares about making them. 

This was the Bride & Grooms special area with a customised pallet bench courtesy of the Groom. 

Ahhh the popcorn station this stand was handmade by the groom.  It was made to hold the big buckets on top for the adults who didn't want grubby hands in it and then ready to go bags of popcorn that was easy to grab.  

 This was a rain day project for me and my boys and they could barely contain themselves when it came to not eating it all.  We made a few different flavors.  Chocolate drizzled with coconut, white chocolate with sprinkles, caramel, and pink popcorn. 

 Just a few bags right

Another fantastic touch was this custom made bar that fit the space perfectly and of course finished off with the bunting banner. 

 Everywhere you looked there was something beautiful no space was untouched.  Throughout the space there were a ton of potted plants that came from a local business Verdue Farms

As this was an outside wedding of course you need a space for the bathrooms and beside them we set up this tent that housed a changing station for the babes and a dresser with mirror as the ladies like to make sure they are looking good.  

 I made this cute powder room sign along with some road signs that I forgot to take pictures of.

I know a lot of pictures but wasn't it worth it, of course I can't leave you without showing some spectacular pictures of the Bride & Groom.  My wonderfully talented sister Carrie took these photos so be sure to check Liquid Light Photography and editing of photos were done by the bride herself at My Shabby Studios.  You can stop by their pages to see more of these photos. 

Hope you enjoy and are inspired to create your own piece of Shabby Chic

So sweet and unique! You and your sister did a great job!!! Love the bench and popcorn stand.

Great photos of the couple!!!

I don't understand the floor. Did you have to pour concrete for a new floor or is it just a floating dance floor?

Beautiful! Just Beautiful! And, wow - that was a lot of work! Sounds like everyone pitched in to help. Love the burlap and bunting, the brewery bar, powder room tent. As someone who decorates for weddings, I know how much time and effort went in to all this! WELL DONE!!! Catherine

A stunning shabby chic creation! I loved your work. The pink color is looking perfect. You have used perfect embellishments to create this card. My sister is getting married and going to book one of iconic wedding venues Los Angeles. I would love to make such a wonderful card for her.
